SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27, 2018 — Avid Secure, the next-generation cloud security and compliance company, is excited to announce that co-founder and CTO Ganesh Krishnan has been accepted into Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives. Prior to co-founding Avid Secure, Krishnan held several executive positions in information security at global enterprises, including Atlassian, LinkedIn, and Yahoo.
Krishnan joins other Forbes Technology Council members, who are hand-selected, to become part of a curated network of successful peers and get access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit thought leadership articles and short tips on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com.
Forbes Councils combines an innovative, high-touch approach to community management perfected by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes. As a result, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses — and a dedicated member concierge who acts as an extension of their own team, providing personalized one-on-one support.
"The accelerating adoption of public cloud environments has created a need for revolutionary security solutions that not only address technology but also the people and process parts of security", said Krishnan. "I am excited to share my experience as a product builder and security practitioner with the Forbes Technology Council Members and the broader Forbes audience."
"We are honored to welcome Ganesh into the community," said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. "Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world."
